Final Decision on Hybrid In-Person for Grades 9 through 12

Based on the data and guidance from the Kent County Health Department, we will not be expanding hybrid in-person for students in grades 9 through 12.

The Kent County Health Department has not approved the new 3 feet social distancing mitigation measure for grades 9 through 12. Due to the number of students in grades 9 through 12 currently in the hybrid in-person model, we are unable to combine the cohorts and still maintain the 6 feet social distancing mitigation measure that is required.

As a result, the current 2-day hybrid in-person schedule for students in grades 9 through 12 (Cohort A Monday/Tuesday and Cohort B Thursday/Friday) will continue for the remainder of the school year.

While we know this decision may be frustrating for some, since the beginning of the pandemic, we have clearly and consistently shared that our decisions would be based on the science, data, and guidance from the Kent County Health Department.

Thank you for your understanding and support. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact your student’s school.
